A gondola wedding is known as the most special

kinds of wedding gondola : the classic and
traditional gondola, the wedding gondola with
one gondoliere wearing the white and gold
uniform and the luxory wedding gondola with gold
embellishments and two gondolieres wearing white
and gold uniform.
The traditional gondola must be rent by the
competent zone gondolier cooperative, but the
Wedding Gondolas may be hired directly by the
gondolier owners that will be very proud to
prepare it in the most rich and luxurious way.
In a city like Venice, the water ways have
always been the most used for transports. The
Gondola, for its characteristics of
manoeuvrability and speed, has been, till the
coming of the motorized means, the boat most
suitable to the people transport. It was born as
private means for people of a certain class, it
was used both to move from a place to another of
the city( and to go to the nearest islands), and
for the pleasure of moving on the water aboard a
comfortable and silent boat. In a Gondola, in
fact, one could enjoy the cool in the hot summer
nights, showing off one's own elegance, talking
with the passengers of the near gondole, beyond
doing all a series of uses (and abuses) that
made this wonderful boat a private territory
functioning as a house but also as a
gaming-house, embassy, garconniere and more. "Gondolone
da parada" in the Great Canal.
Of course not everyone could have or hire a
gondola for these uses: the people, generally,
got on it to make himself " ferry"from one part
to the other of a canal. For this need, in fact,
they were used boats with a plane bottom much
similar to the "gondoloni da parada" that are
used nowadays to cross the Great Canal. The
famous "trip in a gondola". Still now there is a
similar distinction: there are Gondole destined
to the visit of the city, to the night cool, to
the serenades, to the famous "trip in a gondola"
( they are called "charterage gondole", because
they are , in practice, hired) and there are
gondole "da parada" used for the crossing of
canals, for "ferry", that is to say. The first
are used generally from tourists, and, but only
in some occasions (marriages, for example), even
from Venetians, who are continuous boat-goers,
for the practical needs of going from one part
to the other of the Great Canal.
